I have to admit, I was only vaguely familiar with him before the lockout - and only really knew about him in terms of NHL labour relations.

Reading some of the posts on this board, it seems like over the years he's screwed his own team on a number of occasions - although, I assume he's not as bad as Ballard - or even Wirtz were.

Today, Joe Haggerty discusses his role in the lockout (as well as the one in 04/05):

Haggerty: Jacobs should be held responsible

I thought this was charming:
Oh man, such a pure example of the big ole boys club in the NHL. I, among others here, have claimed for a long time that there is a certain relatively small group of owners in the NHL who truly run the show. Unfortunately, I'm not in a ranting mood to say more,... well perhaps fortunately.

I'm surprised though that people here think that Jacobs is the only one; almostly certainly he is not.
